We have eaten at several Black Bear Diners. This was the dirtiest and dreariest of them all. I know that it’s one of the oldest in the chain - but it needs updating. The food here was alright - not as good as others that...More

This is a nice family diner without the frills. Chuck, our server was fantastic. The food was good and plentiful. It was the largest taco salad I’ve ever had. We took a brownie and banana cream pie to go. It was delicious.

While in Redding we decided to try a different breakfast place each day. This was on our last day or we would have had it another time. The breakfast is very good as well as the service.

Travelers know Redding as a pass-through on the way to somewhere but locals know of the natural wonder and slower pace that define their city. Nestled near the northern tip of the Sacramento Valley, Redding offers a spectacular view and a short trip to Lassen Volcanic Park to the east, the Trinity Alps to the west, and Mount Shasta to the north.
